Tools for Schools, Volume 1
Provides specific ways to use word processing, graphics, slide shows, page layout, database, spreadsheet, charting, hypermedia, and telecommunications software (including e-mail and the Internet) to teach topics in the K-12 curriculum. The text is written at a beginning level for teachers who have had little or no prior experience with computers. Sample activities, teaching ideas, and step-by-step instructions will help the instructor use these computer applications as well as teach students how to use them in their classrooms with children. The student learns how the computer can be used as a practical tool that teachers and students can use in all areas of education. May be used with either a Macintosh or Windows PC. To effectively use the text, instructors will need ClarisWorks 5.0, HyperStudio 3, and Netscape or another Web browser.
